    Agreed, I had mentioned the concern of higher core counts earlier as well. My thought here though is how high will Intel by design go? if they hold true to the Xeon cores the 18 core may see a turbo of only 3.5-3.6 GHz. This may fall within power limits but means a 4.0 GHz TR will give the Intel chips a bit more of a fight than originally thought.

    It's a shame they put that tacky shroud on there if for no reason other than the adverse aesthetics. I have to admit that I really don't like how it looks and would not want that on my system. Seems like extra crap to unnecessarily complicate the simplistic beauty of having a desktop.

    He seems to think the shroud in this case is ducting air and providing better cooling to the VRM's than other shrouds, but I think removing all that plastic would be a good idea, and apply some real active cooling.

    This board, and the X299 Prime had a number of thermal, current, and power off failures while OC'ing, not good...shown in the video after 15:00.

    Starting at 23:34 - not a gaming platform, not much improvement from OC...

    It'd be one brave hopeful soul who'd buy a current x299 mobo with the aim of dropping one of the >12cores in later on.

    12-core Intel Core i9 7920X will get a 400 MHz slower base-clock

    Intel Core i9-7920X 12-Core Monster Enthusiast Processor Rocks 2.9GHz Base Clock

    Intel’s 12-core i9 7920X will run slower than their ten-core 7900X

    "Intel were originally claiming 15% better performance (albeit on SysMark…) for Coffee Lake compared with the previous Kaby Lake generation of chips, but at Computex this year they annouced the performance increase will be double that.

    "Earlier this year you probably heard we committed to get a 15% performance improvement as we went from 7th generation to 8th generation core," said Intel's Gregory Bryant. "But you know our engineers, they weren't satisfied with that, they didn't want to stop there. They knew that they could do better and they dug in.

    "Now I'm happy to report the 8th generation is going to deliver more than double that. That's right, more than 30% performance improvement generation over generation."

    That would be an impressive generational performance uplift, especially considering the last few generations of Intel chips have struggled to even offer a modest 10% performance boost. The fine print at the bottom - which I even struggled to read on the big screen - claims the >30% comparison actually refers to the low-power, ~15W Core i7 chips of the two generations, not the desktop processors."

    @hmscott I called it! :D

    I don't remember where exactly but I called BS on a 15% performance improvement for desktops day 1.
